NCHA

Support Worker
Location: Northampton
Salary: £19,374 per annum (£10.07 per hour) plus enhancements
Hours: 37 per week, full time and part time available

Interviews are being arranged on an ongoing basis 

This is a Quick Apply Vacancy so the application form will take no longer than 15 minutes to complete. You will need to attach an up-to-date CV.

Saxon Court has just recently opened in the heart of Northampton – we still have a few Support Worker vacancies left to fill. If you want to work for a caring, values-led employer, submit your application today!

Saxon Court is home to 17 residents with complex learning disabilities and/or have a condition on the autistic spectrum with behaviours that concern and associated mental health conditions. Based just outside Northampton Town Centre, near Victoria Park, this will be an exciting opportunity for you to be part of the set up team for this newly opened service.

As these residents will be coming from either an institutionalised environment or living away from home for the first time, you will go on this exciting journey with them and play a big part in helping them integrate and live independently in the community.  To do this, you will work with them to find out their interests and hobbies and plan activities accordingly, provide emotional wellbeing support and advice, encourage them to access befriending and advocacy services.

No two days will be the same as you may have already gathered. Support could be anything from making friends, personal care, painting, bowling, reading, going to the gym, park, cinema; cooking cleaning, cooking tasty balanced meals or even watching football… you name it.

But, ultimately it must be what they want to do!

Although the role will be challenging it will also be highly rewarding and you would be making a difference in someone’s life and putting a smile on their face.

Don’t sweat the small stuff:

  • You don’t necessarily need to have experience in care as we will provide you with the required training to help you fully meet the needs of the residents. All you need is common sense, a ‘can do’ attitude, be willing to learn and share our values as an organisation.
  • You don’t need to be a car driver as the project is only about a 5 minute walk from Northampton Train Station and the Bus Station. 

Flexibility is key though for this role as the shift times will be reliant on what activity the residents have got on and when they want to do it. All shifts will be on rota basis and will be spread across weekdays, weekends and bank holidays.  This includes nights and sleep- ins; a bonus is paid for waking nights and double time paid for Christmas and New Year shifts. In addition, an allowance of £36.78 also paid for sleep-ins.

We have various contracts available and welcome applicants that are looking for part-time or full-time opportunities.

What’s in it for you?

  • Generous annual leave – c36.5 days leave a year with additional 2 days after 5 years’ service
  • Free massages – Healthcare Cash Back Plan worth up to £875 per year on your routine healthcare costs e.g. Dentist, opticians plus you can claim for massages, teeth whitening and more!
  • Plan for your future – Company Pension Scheme options with contributions matched by NCHA and includes life assurance cover
  • Family Friendly – Enhanced maternity/paternity/adoption pay
  • Focus on your development – Great learning & development and qualification opportunities, get paid to earn a qualification!
  • Online shopping discounts – Employee benefits scheme where you can get discounted bus passes and gym membership, discounts and cashback at major retailers
  • Support through those difficult times – Free access to employee Advice Line; offering a 24-hour confidential advice service to discuss work or home related concerns with professional advisors
  • Recruit your mates We’ll pay you £250 for successfully referring a friend/family member to work at NCHA

All successful candidates will be required to take a basic numerical and literacy as part of the selection process.

All correspondence will be via your registered email address.

As an Equal Opportunities and Disability Confident Employer, NCHA welcomes applications from all suitably qualified candidates including those from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups and disabled candidates. As part of our LGBT + Allies Programme, we also welcome applications from members of the LGBT + community and encourage inclusivity in the workplace.

Whilst experience is not essential as full training will be provided we very much welcome previous experience working as: Support Worker, Home Carer, Care Worker, Health Care Assistant, Support Worker, Nurses, Social Care Worker, Care Assistant, Mental Health Care Worker, Voluntary Worker.
